In a lot of cases I've default to an text input instead of a integer type because I hate the way browsers display it. That side toggle doesn't work on mobile and isn't very intuitive. So instead I'm using these displays, a slider and a "input spinner"(not the name I would have given it but I'm going with it). I harolsve use cases for both styles of these inputs.
